Arsenal Star's Stunning Volley Goal for Les Bleus

Arsenal Star's Stunning Volley Goal for Les Bleus

From there, Ola Toivonen finished well from long range to make it 2-1, though he had the whole goal to aim at because Lloris had rushed so far out.

Sweden and France compete for the first place in Group A and direct qualification to the World Cup (7:45 p.m UK Time).

Dick Advocaat's third spell in charge of The Netherlands meanwhile began with a 5-0 rout of minnows Luxembourg, Switzerland maintained their ideal record after six games with a 2-0 win at Faroe Islands, and Belgium stayed on course with a 2-0 win at Estonia. However, it is too early to relax - Bulgarian team below just one point. Instead, they'll remember Lloris's howler. In these matches, France tied in the 1st round with Belarus, and afterwards invariably defeated Bulgaria, the Netherlands, Sweden and Luxembourg.

It only reached Giroud though, who expertly teed himself up for a volley just inside the box.

France will be without left-back Layvin Kurzawa, who underwent groin surgery in May.

"I am not going to condemn Hugo", Deschamps said to TF1. Hence, RealSport predicts France to pick up a crucial away win to move six points clear at the top of Group A. Since a single team advancing to the World Cup directly, it is particularly important to secure this position.

At the De Kuip stadium in Rotterdam, the Dutch veterans stole the show in an expectedly large win.

Veterans Arjen Robben (21) and Wesley Sneijder (34) laid the groundwork for a Dutch victory in coach Dick Advocaat's first game in charge.

It would go some way to repairing the heartbreak the French suffered last summer when, as hosts of Euro 2016, they lost the final in Paris to Portugal.

The hosts went ahead after 33 minutes though a penalty from Mikhail Sivakov and a fine individual effort from Pavel Savitskiy sealed victory with 10 minutes left.

The most successful Swedish striker of all time is still mending an injury, but he's likely to feature in the starting formation.

Ronaldo added to the lead with a header after a right-flank cross that deflected off a defender in 63rd, and four minutes later he set up Andre Silva's easy goal from inside the area. This was Ronaldo's first appearance for Portugal on his home island, though the celebrations were somewhat tarnished by Sweden's fantastic comeback.
